Clash of Rights on a Brooklyn Bus New York Times. Yours truly would not cooperate.
Bloomberg. So we kill people more efficiently, via ethanol subsidies and then by shooting them?
Wall Street Journal. Duh.
Washington Post (hat tip reader furzy mouse)
Finalternatives. Proof that the market for hedgies is past its sell by date.
David DeGraw. In case you missed this history.
SignOn. I’ve had readers make offended observations in comments on the way various establishment liberal groups (yes, that is an oxymoron) are fundraising off the back of Occupy Wall Street, particularly MoveOn. Please sign the petition if you are bothered by this, as I am.
David Swanson. This is outrageous. Give NPR a piece of your mind at 202-513-2300 or [email protected]
Bloomberg. From last week but points to a way marketmakers aren’t benign middlemen as Lloyd Blankfein would have you believe. And a more recent, related piece: Bloomberg (hat tip reader Ted K)
Los Angeles Times (hat tip MBH). Sure not lookin’ like Harris is going to rejoin Tom Miller’s less than 50 state attorney general whitewash. The article mentions “false pretenses,” which is a very weird formulation that doesn’t map readily onto any legal theory I’m familiar with. One correspondent said that some states are relying on theft law (!) rather than securities law as the basis for prosecution.
New York Times. Citi disgorged profits, paid interest on them and also paid a fine. But I see nada on investor losses. You can’t judge the adequacy of the deal without that.

New York Times (hat tip Debra C). Eeek.
